Acrylic On Water Colour Paper


Outcome is Faris' attempt to be part of the Japanese identity through the traditional Japanese art of paper folding known as Origami.


Although having a Japanese family name, the artist never identified myself as one. Born and raised in Singapore to a mixed heritage family, Faris has always felt that he couldn't identify with any particular race. In hopes to find a place where he could get the sense of belonging, he travelled to Japan.


The best-known model of Origami is the Japanese paper crane. He learned how to fold the Japanese paper crane but with only written instructions and no physical guidance as a reflection of him being part Japanese only on papers and had not grown up in a Japanese-cultured environment. The end results were anomalies of the Japanese crane.


This artwork was exhibited in Palazzo Ca' Zanardi, Venice
